Uttlesford is set to receive a jobs and investment boost thanks to David Wilson Homes Eastern Counties.
148 homes will be built at Kingswood Place, the David Wilson Homes development on Stansted Road in Elsenham, underpinning 296 jobs. The housebuilder will also invest over half a million pounds in the local area which will include £380,000 for a multi-purpose community building. £130,000 will be used to provide play areas while over £20,000 will be invested across primary education, early years and childcare.
The broad mix of properties available at Kingswood Place will be designed to suit the needs of the local community and there will be two, three, four and five bedroom homes.
Jason Colmer, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes Eastern Counties, said: “As well as building much needed homes for local people we will also provide skilled employment opportunities and we are delighted our work at Kingswood Place will underpin nearly 300 jobs. Our investment in the district will directly benefit local residents through facilities such as the multi-purpose community building.”
Kingswood Place offers fantastic connections. It is just a 55 minute train journey to London Liverpool Street from the railway station in Elsenham while the M11 is within easy reach and Stansted Airport is four miles away. There is a wealth of amenities to be found in Elsenham, including a number of shops, and there are several towns and villages nearby, such as Bishop’s Stortford and Saffron Walden, which offer further choice.
Information about the homes available to buy at Kingswood Place will be available later this year. The show homes are due to open in spring 2016 and the first homes will be ready for people to move into next summer.
